Flathead Valley Community College invites the community to explore careers in health care at an open house on March 3 in the Rebecca Chaney Broussard Center for Nursing and Health Science on the FVCC campus. Free and open to the public, Night at the Broussard Center is scheduled from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

“Employment in health care is projected to grow much faster over the next 10 years than in any other occupational field,” said FVCC Director of Educational Services Chris Clouse. “FVCC offers a variety of certificate, degree and transfer programs for people interested in working in health care.”

Following live demonstrations of various health care careers in action, guests will be invited to visit booths containing information about FVCC’s 28 health care programs, including emergency medical technician, paramedicine, health information technology, health care office management, medical coding, certified medical assistant, nursing, pharmacy technology, physical therapist assistant, radiologic technology, surgical technology and others.

The event is designed to help participants discover which health care career may best suit them and learn how to find success in the health care field of their choice. Career Coach, an online program that assesses career interests and provides current data on wages, employment, job postings and associated education and training, will be available for use by guests at the open house. Representatives from the college’s financial aid and admissions offices also will be on hand to answer questions and provide assistance.
